Shallum and Danielle Bivens

Nordic Homes has been a premier custom home builder in Oregon since 2003.  Since its inception Nordic's focus has always been on delivering a personal, hands on building experience that makes our clients feel at ease from the first meeting until they step foot into their new home.  For us this is a partnership from start to finish.  Every Nordic home is as unique and important as the clients for whom it is being built.
Shallum and Danielle Bivens work directly with our clients on every detail from the initial concept all the way through construction to the finished home making sure our clients are receiving exactly what they desire in their custom home.


Owner- Builder

The precision and attention to detail that Shallum has acquired working in the building industry for over 25 years has been the foundation for his success as the business owner of Nordic Homes. Shallum works with clients from lot/land acquisition all the way through final touchup to make sure every detail receives the proper amount of attention.

 Shallum's personal attention goes into every home where he can be found on a daily basis answering questions for those working on site and overseeing all the finer details.

Shallum is your “boots on the ground” builder.  You'll occasionally see him throwing on his bags and swinging his hammer. In the end there is no one that puts more effort into making certain your home is exactly as you imagined.

Selection Design Specialist

Each Nordic Homes client will work our Selection Design Specialist, Danielle Bivens prior to and during construction to make the design selections necessary to create a home that uniquely reflects individual inspirations and desires. 
Danielle works seamlessly with our builder Shallum, Nordic partners, subcontractors and product reps to assure that the vision for the home comes to life exactly as imagined. Her knowledge and background in construction means that she is equally comfortable working with homeowners in the design studio or with our subcontractors out on the job site.
During the build process Danielle will act as a guide through the design appointments and she will provide as much direction and advice as desired. She works with clients on all interior design details, cabinet layouts, fireplace wall designs, bars, hardware, paint, lighting, carpet, tile – you name it. Her boundless energy and drive assures that the building experience with Nordic Homes will be both fun and rewarding.
